Thanks everyone for all these answers.

One more thing. Having moved the originals to external HDs as referenced files, I updated the Aperture vault on to two HDs. Those vaults don't seem to have got any smaller. So does a vault contain the originals even when the originals are referenced? Could you restore from a vault on one HD if the originals were on another, failed HD?


No! Vaults do not contain referenced images! You have to make separate backups of the external images, or you will be sorry one day.

Much obliged for clearing that up. I'll act accordingly.
